Olivia Jade Calls Lori Loughlin Her Best Friend in Mother’s Day Post as Her Case Continues
Celebrities are sharing their posts on Mother’s Day and Olivia Jade Giannulli’s message includes a throwback photo. She shared a message to her mother, Lori Loughlin not long after her mother’s bid to get her case dismissed was denied. Find out what she said in her post and more about Loughlin’s case.
Lori Loughlin is facing charges for fraud, bribery and more
The actress and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California by falsely claiming they were athletic recruits, according to USA Today. They no longer attending the school.
Prosecutors claim they took photos of their daughters sitting on rowing machines for alleged fake athletic profiles. Six other parents were also accused of participating in the same alleged scheme.
They are now facing charges for fraud, bribery, and money laundering. The couple entered pleas of not guilty.
Giannulli has since returned to social media and continued releasing makeup videos on her YouTube channel in December. “So just an update, also, I have a vlog that I’m still working on a filming. It’s just not done. I wanted to get this video — or really any video up sooner after my initial video,” she said in a video. “But I’m not done with it and I’m still just like easing back into it. So thanks for being patient. You guys are awesome.”
The influencer previously got backlash over her comments in an older video for how she talked about going to college. “I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna [sic] attend but I’m gonna [sic] go in and talk to my deans and everyone and hope that I can try and balance it all,” she said. Giannulli later added, “But I do want the experience of like game days, partying … I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know.”
Loughlin’s bid to dismiss her case was denied
Loughlin’s attorneys argued federal agents entrapped their clients, which includes her husband, Giannulli. They claimed admissions consultant, William “Rick” Singer was coached to “bend the truth” in recorded conversations with them.
On May 8, Judge Nathaniel Gorton denied Loughlin’s bid to have her case dismissed claiming the agents didn’t commit misconduct according to Variety. “After consideration of the extensive briefing, affidavits and other information provided by the government and defendants, the Court is satisfied that the government has not lied to or misled the Court,” he said.
Olivia Jade wrote that her mother is her best friend
The influencer shared a picture of herself as a baby with her mother for Mother’s Day. She then wrote a message to Loughlin in the caption.
“You are my best friend and have held my hand every day for 20 years making it look like motherhood is an easy job. You are one of a kind. I love you so so so much & cannot wait to give you all the love in the world today & forever. Thank you for being you. You are the most special person to me . I am so blessed to be your daughter and so proud to call you mom. I LOVE YOU,” read the caption. Many fans shared heart emojis under the post.
